Allies and Enemies: Fallen on the Ballot for the Dragon Con Awards!

This year marks the debut of the Dragon Con Awards and my book, Allies and Enemies: Fallen made the ballot in the “Best Military Science Fiction or Fantasy Novel” category. (Weird combo, I know. But so awesome!) What the heck is a Dragon Con you ask? Based in Atlanta, GA and traditionally taking place over the Labor Day holiday, it is the largest fan-run multi-genre conventions in the nation. Think: San Diego ComiCon of the southeastern US. The list has really fabulous talent on it, and like they say at the Oscars, “It’s an honor to just be nominated.” Want to...

5 Things I Wish I Knew About Self-Publishing One Year Ago

It’s been a little over a year since this little self publishing experiment of mine got launched. Time flies when you’re stressing out over the small stuff like compulsively checking your Amazon sales and agonzing over how (or even if) to purchase promotions. One of my former employers once likened the internet to the wild west. That was nearly a decade ago. Because the ‘net ages in terms of dog years, some order has come to the chaos. The rules that run things seem to come out of no where and possess a life of their own. I’m no expert. I’m...

Break Time is Over!

So, things have been a little quiet on my end. Truth be told: I needed a vacation after my vacation. I took a mental holiday from writing for a while. For non-writers, it might be a little hard to imagine writing as stressful. What can be the big deal? Just sit at a keyboard and write. It’s not rocket science. Unless, of course, you’re writing about rocket science. But when you’re indy published like me, there’s a constant battle between creativity and productivity/self-promoting. How do you find time for both? When do you know which is more important? I see...

Seeing stars: Amazon Reviews

I admit it. I was the kid in class that reminded teacher that he or she had forgotten we were supposed to have a quiz that day. This made me wildly unpopular. It was just part of who I was/am. Besides, my main motivation was to get those wonderful little “A”s sketched across the top of my page of loose leaf. If I were to look at them now, I’d recognize them as the scrawl of an exhausted teacher and ultimately useless. But at the time, those precious “A”s looked like tiny Rembrandts, my personal masterpiece and evidence that someone...

Book Tangle

So recently I launched my ebook, Allies and Enemies: Fallen to Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Kobo and Apple via a service called Book Tango. I used them because I was fearful that the format for my ebook would not work correctly across all the various platforms and they could do it for me for a modest fee. It seemed like an easy one stop shop for getting everything done.  Well, it ain’t that easy. It’s over two weeks now and I have no idea of how my book is doing in terms of sales. Therefore I have no idea if...
